There will be an Erma KGP .38 68a in an estate auction soon. Can anyone give me any info(production, value, history, opinion, etc.) on these guns. Just wondering if this is something I should be bidding on when it comes up. I don't have any more info than what I have given. I would greatly appreciate any help.
look for -Erma KGP 68a-, -Erma KGP .380- a.s.o at google. Quite a few infos there.
It's .380 ACP not .38
From the Blue Book:
Erma-Werke went bankrupt in 1997.
KGP68A/Beeman MP-08 .32acp or .380acp. 3-1/2" bbl (Beeman) or 4" bbl, 6 shot mag. Last MSRP was $500. 100% = $450, 90% = $335.
KGP69/Beeman P-08 .22LR, 8 shot mag. Last MSRP was $390. 100% = $335, 90% = $185.
I would shy away from it unless you just HAVE to have one. Parts would be a concern in case something breaks, as well as a mag, IMO.
Sounds like good advice. Thanks for the help..
